Sneezing Hurts!! LOL

Well, it was another beautiful morning! I got up at 5 AM, and not even knowing if my Mother-In-Law was going to make it, headed to the gym!

I did have my little toast, although I think I may switch from peanut butter (@ 150c) to a slice of Laughing Cow cream cheese (@50c) as my topper.... because I can afford to not eat those 100 extra bugger calories!!

Anyway, here is today's post-workout sunrise picture!! 

Sorry it's alittle blurry, the camera on my phone isn't quite a winning feature!!

Also- just a quick little blurb before I begin my laundry and the dishes (today's my late day so I don't work until 2 PM!!)

After my C25K workout (Week 1 Day 2) I decided to take advantage of the quieter side of the gym and check out the machines. I ended up finding a favorite, the ab worker thingy (Yes, that is it's official title!! LOL) 

See I told you it was an ab worker thingy!! Anyway, it is good for a beginner like myself because if I don't have much on the way of actual ab muscles, I can use a little bit of the rocking motion to help me. It has a stopper on the back so I don't roll off the back of the track, but I did pretty good in keeping a slow pace and not relying on the motion to get my knees up. I did 4 sets of 10 "rollercrunches" (Yup, that's what I'm gonna call 'em!) and started to feel the burn!!

Well, on my way home, I sneezed. Those same muscles that had started to complain contracted too quick, and it actually hurt me when I sneezed!! But I was so surprised I started laughing, which hurt even more!! So, I was in a lose-lose situation, but it is good to know that somewhere underneath the flab I have abdominal muscles that are responding to my workouts!

Ta-Ta for now!!

Cinderelly, Cinderelly!
 Night and day it's Cinderelly!
 Make the fire, fix the breakfast!
 Wash the dishes, do the mopping!

And the sweeping and the dusting!
 They always keep her hopping! 

She goes around in circles
 Till she's very, very dizzy!
 Still they holler...

 Keep a-busy Cinderelly!!

  1. Oh those "new" muscles SUCK!

    I am not sure why so much of the gym equipment looks like gynecological torture devices (I'm sorry....can I even say that here ;-)

    I am so proud of you for going, even if you were not sure your mother in law would show up. Keep up the great work!

    Oh and is that little tomato plant of your coming along?
